The news that a new public transport link to Dublin Airport is likely to be announced shortly was welcomed by Dublin Chamber of Commerce today.

Dublin Chamber claims that Such a link is needed not only to serve Dublin Airport, but also to cater for the rapidly-expanding population of north Dublin. They forecast that by 2023 an additional 40,000 people will travel into Dublin City Centre from North County Dublin. 

Furthermore, passenger numbers through Dublin Airport are expected to exceed 23 million within four years. 

Dublin Chamber CEO, Gina Quin commented, "The importance of the Dublin region can be seen in three key facts: Dublin accounts for 42% of the country’s GDP, half of all employment and generates 55% of tax revenues.

"Put simply, ensuring that Dublin is supported and given the tools it needs to reach its potential, is in the interests of the whole country. It is important that the Government follows backs up the Tánaiste’s strong affirmation of Dublin and  business in the upcoming Budget for 2016."
